Inspire is a clean energy technology company on a mission to transform the way consumers access clean energy and to accelerate the world’s transition to a net-zero carbon future.
We provide our customers with access to renewable energy from wind, solar, and hydro powered sources without service interruptions or costly installations at a flat, predictable monthly rate. For every year that a customer spends with Inspire Clean Energy, they have a greater impact on climate change than 10 years of strict recycling.
Our rapidly growing team of mission-driven, climate enthusiasts is passionate, innovative and committed to a better future for the planet.
As a Data Product Manager on Inspire’s Technology team, your work will define how decisions are made, separate the incremental from the exponential opportunities for growth, drive cutting-edge analysis and modeling in a modern data stack, and ensure that we are able to continuously optimize and scale our core business offerings and processes — empowering our customers to reduce their carbon footprint and furthering Inspire’s mission to accelerate the world’s transition to a net-zero carbon future.
Data is at the center of our clean energy platform — it’s how we understand our customers, monitor and improve our acquisition and retention, track and forecast costs and revenues, and make decisions about growth, optimization and strategy.
In this role, you’ll get hands-on with data to quantify opportunities, work closely with business leaders to understand needs, and collaborate with cross-functional engineering teams on end-to-end solutions from data collection to metric presentation. You’ll be responsible for discovery and analysis of problems or potential improvements, translating those into requirements and plans, prioritizing within resource and time constraints, and overseeing implementation in an agile development process to deliver results that measurably improve our growth, value creation, and member experience.

What makes Inspire an exciting place to work?
We are constantly working towards something bigger than ourselves. Our mission is what inspires and connects us. But we're also raising awareness for customers that they have choices when it comes to choosing an energy source.
Roughly 20% of your overall carbon emissions come from your home — which is huge. You can eliminate that 20% from your carbon footprint simply by deciding to go with Inspire.
Through data, we empower customers by informing them of their choices and giving them an option to positively impact the environment.
What’s unique about working on Inspire’s tech team?
Between Philly and Santa Monica, we have about 60 people on our tech team. Being small, we’re able to bond and work together closely. Everyone across the entire team has a hand in creating something for customers. No one group comes up with ideas or roadmaps and presents them to the rest of the group; we collectively decide what we should be working on and how we can work towards bringing Inspire’s overall mission to life.
We’ve created a very supportive and uplifting subculture. It’s not just about social events; it’s about asking, “How can we grow together? How can we work better together?”
How has Inspire has worked to improve employee work/life balance during the pandemic?
Due to the always-on nature of working from home during quarantine, we found that people had started working more hours and taking less PTO. Even when we told people to take time off, they still seemed to check in and contribute. We established “bonus days,” where every other Friday is off for the entire company. That way, no one is working, employees don’t feel that they are missing anything, and everyone can truly relax and recharge.
What qualities make someone a promising job candidate at Inspire?
Everyone at Inspire is driven by the mission to expand access to clean energy and work toward a zero-net carbon future. So we look for candidates who have that same passion for taking care of our earth. We’re a company of team players who collaborate closely, always ready to hop on Zoom to solve problems as a team.
From a tech perspective, we want talented engineers of all levels, but we are also looking for people who also think deeply about the Inspire user and build features and solutions that work for them. People who are interested in their careers and helping grow the careers of those they work with share knowledge and level up their skill sets.
